Patrick was from the Republic Of Ireland, born 14 June 1916. He served in the Royal Navy and lost his life with all those on board HMS Bramble whilst serving in the Arctic Convoys. HMS Bramble was involved in the Battle Of The Barents Sea and was gunned down by Admiral Hipper on 31 Dec 1942. All crew members were lost. RIP.
I have applied for Patrick Kelly’s Arctic Star medal from the MOD.
